In the Habit.
Sometimes I find that I do things from habit, I no longer think about it, I have just always done something a certain way for years. I was trying to wash my hands with little pieces of soap, it's not like I can't afford soap, using a new bar would save me a huge amount of time compared to trying to lather up a bunch of micro pieces. Yet here I am trying to use these little pieces, I don't want to waste them, I have just always tried to get %100 out of my soap. The same thing happens with the tube of toothpaste, by the end I am squeezing the very last drop from the tube, if a pavement roller was working outside, I would probably ask the guy to roll over the tube. I have always done this, I can hear my parents voices, "it's a sin to waste".
These are just habits because I have no problem wasting things, especially food or should I say healthy food, non healthy food never gets thrown out, I have never tossed a box of cookies because they were past their best before date!
I also have a habit of keeping black bananas for the banana bread that I am never going to make. I try to make sure the shampoo and deodorant bottles are completely empty, you would think the world was runny out. I grow lettuce and beets because I always have yet I almost never eat them, I give them away to friends. I buy a local paper when I am getting groceries and often don't read past the first two or three pages. I watch the news at six, even though I could get it anywhere at anytime, we always watched the six o'clock so I feel it's the only real news. I like to see what movies are playing or what events are happening on the weekend, even though I will most likely not go. I am a strange man, I know.
